This week's selection of geek-friendly crowdfunding projects includes a Marvel movie documentary, a game remake, and some classic manga...
Aside from all the new ideas to be found on crowdfunding websites such as Kickstarter - including a new variety of beef jerky made from posh Japanese cows - there are all sorts of opportunities to indulge our sense of nostalgia.

Amanda Dyar: Tell us a little about yourself and Acw Games/Attila's Creative Works LLC.
Attila Juhasz: I'm creatively obsessed. (chuckles) I love to create and am most happy when I write, design, program, produce or compose.
